What’s the goal?
Is it making more money? Having a glitzy job title? Leading a large team? Climbing to the C-Suite? Making a difference to society? Contributing to your community?
The goal is the feeling of accomplishment you get when you make those things happen. Often we underestimate the power of our emotions. We focus on things rather than feelings, when really how we feel about things is driving everything we do. Do you understand what emotions drive you?
Cultivating an attitude of gratitude and decoupling our sense of self worth from our jobs helps develop long term happiness regardless of circumstance.
